In comparison to Pope Francis, Pope Benedict XVI was known to be more traditional.
He is known for his honesty. Once Pope quoted in his speech: "Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached."
Often referred to as 'God's Rottweiler', Pope Benedict XVI was a significant force in shaping Catholic doctrine, but also faced public condemnation for the way he handled the sexual abuse crisis in Catholic Church.
World leaders have paid respects to the German-born pontiff.
The Archbishop of Canterbury eulogized Benedict as "one of the preeminent theologians of our time."
